    I was soo disappointed with the cleanliness, I appreciate that pets are welcome & cause extra dirt but would have expected someone to clean or check cleanliness standards between guests for example wooden flooring was not mopped or blanket on sofa washed which had pet hair on. I had to wash all crockery & utensils prior to use due to not being washed properly previously & food remaining on them. The cutting board smelt awful & had mould growing on it, as well as green sludge around the washing up draining tray. I had to clean everything on arrival myself after paying good money to rent this property. We had problems with the cooking hob which had a faulty ring & tripped the electrics. It also says suitable for 4 adults however the twin beds upstairs are only really suitable for children or fit & healthy adults who can skooch under the low ceilings to get into the bed! The king size bed downstairs has fitted sheets that were for a double bed and hence didn’t fit properly. Lovely if you don’t mind sharing the cottage with the mice & rats too. You can hear them scratching & squeaking during the night plus saw a rat out one of the windows one day.
